Long, flowing manes and tails are characteristic of the wild horse in America - originally descended from escaped horses brought over by Spanish conquistadores. Their arrival revolutionized life for the Plains Indians. Later escaped pioneer and U.S. Calvalry horses diluted the Spanish bloodlines - but in Wyoming there are still pockets of Mustangs that retain their small size, lavish manes and wild temperament.
